Write for Thompson & Morgan’s blog

We’d like to invite you to be part of our newest social community – the Thompson & Morgan blog. We’re looking for bloggers to write posts about gardening-related topics.

We will consider publishing well-written, informative articles, but ask that you only submit original content and do not write about or link to commercial/retail businesses. Please see our blogging rules below and a list of suggested topics. In return, you’ll get a link back to your own blog.

Terms and conditions for bloggers:

  1. We welcome blogs on subjects related to gardening. Please email us to submit an article with ‘Your stories’ as the subject. We will review your article and post it on our blog if we consider it to be suitable. You’ll find a list of subjects that we’re interested in below.
  2. If you’d rather email us a sample of your article before committing to writing the entire post, please do so at the above address.
  3. Please only send original content – we ask that any posts you submit to us are your own work and not published anywhere else. This helps us by not having duplicate content on the blog (the search engines don’t like it) and increases the chances of your post being accepted.

  5. Make sure you include a short section about you and your blog.
  6. Please pay careful attention to grammar and spelling. Ensure that your post is relevant to the subject and easy to read.
  7. Our readers are very keen on learning from others and an informative article with hints and tips will reach a wider audience.
  8. You may supply up to 3 images, which must be your own work or from the public domain and both royalty and copyright free.
  9. We reserve the right to reject or amend posts. We may also remove previously authorised articles from the Thompson & Morgan blog without prior warning.

    • Hi Alexander Ross. I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with the germination rate of the Sea Holly seeds. Sea Holly are generally very hardy so should not be too hard to grow from seed, we advise sowing these any time between February and July. Unfortunately it appears they have been planted too early, which has resulted in the seeds not germinating. I hope that helps, Terri

    Well here goes. This year my small garden has in it a bright pink clematis that was on a final warning (grow or you are out!). Replanted behind a palm tree stump it is flowering its heart out so it must prefer its roots in shade. Having paid more than I ever do for sweet peas they are shooting up the wicker canes. My 2 clematis ( Mother’s Daypresents) are just about to flower. Just been given 20 runner bean plants. Bit leggly so will plant to grow up the arch so will up date you. 4 strawberries on my new plants will the squirrels get to them first. Alone strawberries are running riot amongst the paving. Potatoes are popping up all over the place too. The hedgehog seems to be eating the pests as well as the birds. Regards the lazy gardener
